Patrice Chéreau Rêve d’automne

of Jon Fosse


In Fosse’s plays, the abstract narrative and dreamlike atmosphere always waver between comedy and despair. In Patrice Chéreau’s staging of these “autumn dream”, a couple who might have been in love one day meets in a cemetery. Other characters appear, haunted by the disappearance of their lineage. The play offers a meditation on the twilight of life.
